There were tears aplenty on I'm A Celebrity 2018 tonight when letters from home arrived.
But not all the celebs were lucky enough to get theirs, following a task involving fragile eggs.
A chicken coup arrived in camp containing eight eggs, each labelled with a camp mates name. Using only their fingertips to pass the eggs along the length of the coop, the celebrities had to deliver the eggs safely to the basket at the other end. The eggs that made it into the basket represented a letter from home for that celebrity.
Fleur's egg smashed while the group ran out of time before getting Anne's letter.
LETTERS FROM HOME
James’ letter came from his girlfriend, Kirstie and was read out by Emily:
I read the letter you left for me in your suitcase and I broke down in tears after the first line, which I’m sure won’t surprise you one bit. My gorgeous pup, you are so beautifully sensitive and kind.
The way you’ve carried yourself in the camp is an absolute testimony to that and I want you to be as proud of yourself as I am of you, because I know how nervous you were going into this. As daunting as this whole process has been for you, I hope you are (and think you will be) so happy for having thrown yourself into it. I’ve become even more soppy since you left.
The lack of contact is just the weirdest thing, so I’ve been getting around it by texting you every now and again. I miss you I miss you I miss you and I love you to the ends of the earth. Oh, and happy belated anniversary my darling! Four years together! I fall more in love with you every day. I hope you know that. Keep being you, my darling.
Emily’s letter from her Mum Kate was read by John:
I can’t even begin to tell you how PROUD we are of you! You’ve been so brave and determined and you’ve been your true self from the second you arrived. You seem so happy. You’re so funny and your beautiful freckly face without makeup reminds me of when you were 9 years old. I know that in John you have made a friend for life. Keep being kind to others and keep dong the impressions.
Nick read Rita’s letter from her mum:
I never doubted that you would grab this challenge by the horns and give it everything you’ve got, and even though I know what you’re capable of, I’m still amazed by what you’ve coped with. I’m SO proud of you and you are an inspiration to your children.
I love how Noel and Harry said that they’re scared of you - Harry even said that any critters you come up against would run away from you!!! By the way, I’d pay attention to what he says if I were you - his tactical skills are legendary and you never know when they might come in useful.
Everybody at home is cheering you on and behind you all the way. Can’t wait to give you a big hug (after you’ve had a bath of course!!!)
Nick’s son TJ’s letter was read by James:
I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how very proud I am of you, not only in terms of how you are doing in the camp, but most importantly how proud I am that you're my dad.
Just to let you know, you owe Chris Moyles a pint, as despite everything last week him and his radio team managed to get 'Make you feel my love' to number one in the itunes Chart!
Can't wait to see you and hope the Rice and Beans aren't getting too tedious.
Harry received a letter, read by Fleur, from his wife Sandra:
I have always been proud of you but the last two weeks watching you has made me realise your strength and determination to succeed at anything life throws at you. But I never thought it would mean eating fish eyes! You have made us all proud. We miss you terribly but I am being well looked after by everybody. The family love you and are so proud of you
Love you always,
PS jam roly poly is waiting!
John’s letter was from husband, Scott and read by Anne
We are just LOVING watching you every day in the show, and seeing you in the trials has been both hilarious and horrifying at the same time. We are so proud of how you’ve kept soldiering on without enough food or sleep - and that in spite of everything you’ve still managed to hold on to your FABULOUSNESS!
I never doubted you - but yes, there have been moments when I could see how much you were in need of a good sandwich…
I am really missing you now, but hope not to get to see you for a little while yet as I can see that underneath it all you’re really loving every minute of the show and having a blast. I am so looking forward to Xmas when we can snuggle up with the dogs again in a nice big comfortable bed - and watch your “I’m a Celebrity” exploits all over again together.
I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues nightly on ITV.
